Lily of the Valley

My neighbor has lilies of the valley and I pulled some last year and planted them in my garden. I have nice green leaves but no flowers are they OK? Does it take a couple of years for them to flower after replanting?

Thanks for writing. Lily of the valley can take a year or two to bloom for the first time after being divided or transplanted. So if you just planted them last year, I wouldn't be worried unless you see signs of other problems (yellowing leaves, distorted leaves, etc.).
